Befriending Services

Delivered by No.1 Befriending Agency
Note: this service is only for older people
  • Befriending

We support people in Greater Glasgow, who live alone and are lonely and/or isolated and are looking for companionship. After every referral, our well-trained Volunteer Coordinators visit each potential client to assess whether they would really benefit from befriending. We never let anybody “hanging”: if somebody is deemed not suitable, we try to find other, more suitable options for them in discussion with the referring agency.
